Hey there, HOUSE friends!!! 

We're here with a new weekly challenge for The House That Stamps Built, and this one is an inspiration challenge.  

From the palette below, I was inspired by the beautiful pastel colors.  One of my favorite Repeat Impressions stamps is RI#1704-P "Great Blue Heron".  I stamped it with VersaMark ink on a white card panel and heat embossed it with white ep.  I then sponged Distress Oxide Inks over the embossed image, creating a resist.  I added darker colors for shadow to areas on the image with Inktense pencils.  After die cutting the image, I layered it against a dry embossed background. I used RI#3902-G "My Heart Sing" for the sentiment.   

Come on over and play along with our challenge - you can find all the details on how to do that at THE HOUSE.  

How about more ideas using this inspiration?  Check out my awesome team mates blogs.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you'll check out the challenge and join in.  You might just be the winner of $25.00 worth of RI stamps!

Relaxed Fairy is such a lovely stamp.  I envisioned she might be wondering what her future would be like so I paired her with "Trust Your Journey".  I created a mask of her and then sponged a background with Distress Inks.  

Meet "Sassy Sue".  She made me think of a 1950's gal, so I had to give her that look.  I paired her with the fun sentiment "Do Wah Ditty".  The background was created by sponging and using a stencil called "Circles Make Circles"  from A Colorful Life Stencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Janelle Stollfus' blog and see all her deliciousness using Rita's awesome Stamps.  And don't forget to use my discount code for a full 10% off your Technique Junkies Stamps order INCLUDING these fabulous new stamps.
